manrake setup problem

i was installing mandrake 10.0 community edition (in graphical mode) and every thing was going okay, the partioning and stuff all went well untill i got to the screen asking me to configure the various options like, vga card, sound card, lan card etc. i configured the sound and vga and monitor properly : (lots of pats on the back) but when i tried to configure the lan card, some thing went bad...... bad as in a console window opened and indicating a couple of failures adn the system restarted....

NOw the grub (which i had installed is not able to load either XP or mandrake.... which i guess is due to the fact that the setup was not finished yet)

what i want to know is that , do i need to reinstall all the stuff prior to this point , or is there some way of resuming from wheret the system had restarted... i took a long time to reach that point........

if any has any suggestions ....plz replly...
thankx in advance


soory, should have posted this in the mandrake forum... but now i dont want to repeat the post there...... soory

I think you may need to start from scratch.

You could try booting a livecd, installing grub, and see if it boots but I wouldn't hold my breath...
